The victim, a 36-year-old man from the community, was taken to hospital where he later died.

He was identified as Joshua Ian Robichaud.

On December 13, Dylan Dedam appeared in Miramichi Provincial Court and was charged with second degree murder.

He was remanded into custody and is scheduled to return to court next August.
